2023 Buffalo- Tifft Nature Center

We stopped here because we finished everything else early. I ran out of steam and wouldn’t do any trails. Enough was enough and even Percocet couldn’t help. This is the history:

Tifft Nature Preserve was created in 1972 from land purchased by the City of Buffalo for a landfill site. The land that comprises Tifft Nature Preserve has a fascinating history. It was once part of a huge dairy farm owned by George Washington Tifft and later became a transshipment center, primarily for coal and iron ore. During the 1950s and 1960s, Tifft’s land was a dumpsite for city refuse.
